“Students who enter schools of architecture today are entering it at a very young age, perhaps when their total world experience and awareness is relatively narrow, and they’re making the decision to become a practicing architect, and putting aside those studies—general ed., liberal arts studies—that might actually, in the end, make them more contributing architects. […] Fewer and fewer people are having that basic liberal arts, general ed. knowledge in the profession. And it’s a serious problem.”
In one of their latest episodes of their Archiculture series, Arbuckle Industries interviews Terry Heinlein, a residential architect from Massachusetts who is a member of the AIA, Boston Society of Architects, Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture, and is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration boards. In his interview, Heinlein discusses issues with architectural education, the differences between US and European architectural study, and the current types of projects being built in New York City and around the country. Heinlein additionally explains why it is important for architects to lead in building projects.
